Head coach Andy Reid discussed Kansas City’s 17-27 loss to the Denver Broncos today with the media.
Among other things, Reid talked about mistakes offensively and how the Chiefs need to do much better job of starting strong:
“There were some good things and there were some bad things, some things that we need to work on,” Reid said. “The first 19 plays of the game offensively, and we did start the game offensively, so the first 19 plays offensively, we had an offsides, we had a drop, we had a turnover and we had a fumbled snap.”
“We were playing against a good football team, and that’s not even adding in the penalties that we had there after that,” he explained. “You can learn from these things. I want to make sure that I get us in the right position to start games. We’re not starting fast enough right now,” he said.
“I’m going to work on that part and make sure that I do a better job of getting the guys an opportunity. But, during those first 19 plays, now those are some things that we need to get corrected.”
Kansas City committed nine penalties for a total of negative 53 yards. The Chiefs also turned the ball over once on a fumble.
